No, I’m not going back to fucking hell hole minnesota!! I vote Red and love this state. It’s not like I’m making it any worse. Pinellas county needs more conservatives for gods sake

I’m A Ok with conservatives moving here and preserving the freedom that Florida offers. Leftists moving here is a fucking shame. I’ve never felt at home anywhere else but Florida. My son was born here, I was married here, I love this state, it’s the best in the USA and IMO the best place on earth, we do need to do something about the liberal problem though.

Also old oak trees.
 Quoting: Gummedchromeroller


Also old pine trees. There's a dead pine just on the my neighbor's side of the property line. It's dropped three large branches on my property in the last month. It could be bad for either house if it fell. Fortunately for me it's leaning slightly in his direction.
 Quoting: Astromut


It wouldn't hurt to add a webbing strap to the tree as high as easily attached, to a ground anchor, and direct the tree to where you want it to go, rather than leave it to chance where it will go.

It's on my neighbor's property. I don't think he'd be ok with me making sure it falls on his house.

Re: I'm in Pinellas waiting for a direct hit. Elsa thread. (The storm that aint)
Weirdest pre- storm ever. Not a puff of breeze coastal Daytona. I have been through ten hurricanes here. This is bizarre.

By now we should have gusts at 20 mph. We have nada.
 Quoting: humbird


Right? I’ve only been here in FL since 2008 but this is ominous, strange, it’s incredibly quiet, clouds look off. I’m probably overthinking it but I took my dog to the park earlier and got an eerie vibe although I did see two huge, beautiful butterflies. A Monarch and a black/yellow striped one. A butterfly or bumblebee always makes me smile!

The lakes were pretty calm too. The calm before the storm? Or nothing....who knows anymore. There was also a drone above, really high, following the power lines so probably Google Maps or something? Ugh. Can we go back to the era before cell phones?
 Quoting: J-lee


It has a completely different feel than before most storms. Now we have a tiny onshore breeze, but the trees aren't moving. Almost seems CGI.

Here in Pasco country, FL 3 miles from coast.

1st ban came through about an hour and 1/2 ago.

My weather station clocked 33 mph and 1/3 inch of rain.

Expecting peak of storm between 4-6 am as a CAT 1 hurricane.

Completely agree. I used to live in Mel Beach and could get a better feel for the weather. I’m in Central FL now but still, this has a weird, ominous vibe. I’m sure all the doom is clouding our judgment but it still has a “je ne sais quois” ya know what I’m saying? We’ll most likely wake up tomorrow and be fine.

Re: I'm in Pinellas waiting for a direct hit. Elsa thread. (The storm that aint)
I think it's just gonna skirt the coast. Just some 72yo Floridian intel for you: That current from Tampa bay. If it's going out when the storm passes we're all good. If the tide is coming in, we might have a small problem.

That said. It's a cat 1. No one should really give a shit unless your place floods. Also old oak trees.


Anyone in Largo or Clearwater need any help after the storm, holler and I'll see if I can be of service.

That was more than likely a zebra long wing butterfly. My wife’s favorite in the state.

My logic is that I was at the coast a few hours ago and saw plenty of birds of different kinds so I think we’re safe, don’t they normally flee before major weather events? Or is that just earthquakes?
 Quoting: ~LSDMTHC~


Those are called swallowtail butterflies. I have them all around my house. We’re starting to get the heavy stuff here in Punta Gorda... it’s quite the drizzle! A few days ago it rained 5 inches in an hour and we had wind gusts over 50mph. That was an actual tropical storm.

Plan is for it to skirt very closely to Pinellas County. I was here for Elena, who circled off our coast for days, and the damage was extensive, so was the flooding.

Problem is if the government doesn't do anything, then everyone will blame the government for not warning them, catch 22.
